Fighting DUI Charges
Driving under the influence is one of the most difficult charges to defend, because the State often has significant evidence against the accused. Mr. Baker is not easily intimidated. As an experienced Arizona defense lawyer, Mr. Baker has successfully defended clients by carefully analyzing the situation and finding weaknesses in the prosecution’s case:
- DUI stop: Did the officer have reasonable suspicion to stop your car? Were there cues that suggested the driver was impaired? If not, the evidence may be excluded, and your case dismissed.
- Field sobriety tests: Sobriety tests, such as walking in a straight line, standing on one foot, and others, must be conducted according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration manual. Failure to follow this manual exactly may be grounds to throw out the evidence.
- Blood tests: If you submitted to a blood test, we will question whether the blood alcohol content was actually above the limit of (.08), (.15), or (.20) or above by sending those blood tests to an independent lab to re-test the blood sample.
- Breath tests: Breath test machines that are not properly maintained, or that were operated by someone without the proper certification, may give inaccurate results.
Mr. Baker will provide you with an aggressive criminal defense; he will not let the State take advantage of your position. However, he also sets realistic expectations. If there is strong and compelling evidence against you, he will do all he can to mitigate the penalties and help you move on from the unfortunate situation you are now facing.
